Secret Service shuts down ‘fire Eric Holder’ protest
Washington Examiner ^ | 7 2 2012 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 07/02/2012 10:02:30 AM PDT by tutstar

U.S. Secret Service officers shut down a student-led protest calling for President Obama to fire Attorney General Eric Holder this morning, according to a report from in front of the White House.

After discovering a “suspicious package,” the Secret Service ended the protest. “Several agents seemed hostile to our march and seemed anxious for us to leave the area,” Maurice Lewis, a University of California student, told Campus Reform. “The discover[y of] the ‘unidentified package’ came just as the protest began gain traction.”

The U.S. House of Representatives cited Holder for contempt of Congress on Thursday after he defied a subpoena demanding documents pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, the gun-walking scheme that claimed border patrol agent Brian Terry’s life.

The Justice Department denied, in a February 4, 2011, letter to Congress, that law enforcement ever allow guns to be trafficked into Mexico. In December 2011, DOJ retracted that claim.

About 50 students congregated outside the White House this morning for the anti-Holder protest.

Gut instinct - it was planted to end the student protest. Oboma didn't want to hear it.

I “suspect” the Secret Service brought in the “suspiscious” package so they could shut down the protest.

Where were the Metropolitan Police?

Brown shirts is right!! Watch Matthew Boyle’s twitter feed, he’s going to post video soon. We have some admirable young patriots. It gives me hope. He wrote something the other day re FF and debunked a Fortune article.

I can’t believe how quickly things are going downhill!

So, the Occupy Washington crowd got to stay even after one of their members popped off a few assault rounds at the White House. But this crowd gets forcibly removed over some mysterious package that, as of yet, has not been reported as dangerous at all. Don’t take a brain surgon to figure out what’s going on here.

No, remember that law they passed a couple of month ago about shutting down protests near government officials . You know, the law the msm didn’t cover.

I suspect you are correct. Obama is looking more and more like a Charlie Manson type.

Occupy Wall Street had nothing but suspicious packages and characters. Funny they didn't notice. (/s)

If the Oboma administration didn't plant it - they shut down the protest because someone had the audacity to pack a lunch!

Hey, what ever works, right? The end justifies the means. They succeeded in shutting down the citizens dissent.

student-led protest

Oboma needs the youth vote. Pictures of this on the news would be very, very bad PR. It had to be stopped - for Obomas sake.

I'll bet the MSM won't say a word about it. Shhhhhh.......

The SS has that authority based on President von Hindenberg’s Reichstagsbrandverordnung.

There is but you can’t have suspicious boxes lying around...We could have another McVeigh situation or worse. These things need to be looked into. Perhaps they could have protested another day when the situation was under control.

Yep. Unless demonizing the protest serves the government's ends.
